FS9 regulary shuts down pc

Post by cpt nick » 11 May 2009, 21:45

Hi, I reinstalled FS9 and for one flight everything went fine but after each time i get into a filght, even if i paused the flight it goes to the 'your computer has been shut down to prevent damage, if this is the 1st time youve seen this message blah blah' blue screen, it did this before but i reinstalled FS all and now it does it regular. :rmad: :rmad:
any suggestions?

Hi Nick,

Could it be something like overheating? The word damage sounds like such a thing, but I need some more text from that blue screen to be sure.

FS9 never shut down my PC, but it did cause a reboot when I had some old nVidia driver. Is yours up to date?

cheers,

You know, I'v got this problem too. What'll happen to me is I'll be flying, and my fan for my computer will come on, and then after about 8 mins of that, mine will reboot itself. Once it reboots, a box says 'Your system has recovered from a serious error', and it'll tell me to just send the report to Microsoft or don't send it.

Sounds like a heat issue if it says it's been shut down to prevent damage.

As for the BSODs, that usually means a new piece of hardware or drivers has buggered something up. Faulty hardware is usually the issue there, so try taking out any new bits. And update any drivers.

Since I don't know anything about that, what does update your drivers mean?

Update your hardware component's drivers to the latest version. To get these just head to the manufacturer's website and you should be able to download them from there.

I have an HP computer with Microsoft Windows. Should I go to Microsoft or HP?

He means the manufacturer of the components inside your PC.

Ok, so I'll try to go to HP's website and download it. I don't have any hardware that didn't come with the computer, so I'll try that.

Just because your computer was made by HP doesn't mean all the components are made by HP. You will need to find out which manufacturer made your components and download them from their website. For example, your graphics card: it is most likely made by nVidia or ATI and I don't think you can get drivers for that from HP so you'd need to go to the specific website.
